Kallista by Della Rose

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Kallista is part of the lower I-caste which means she is doomed to be a servant for her whole life if she doesn’t do something to change that. However, her friend comes up with an idea to get Kallista to pretend to be part of the P-caste so she can try and find a husband who can save her from that life. It should all work out, but then she meets Sage and things change.

Oh this book… I don’t even know how to start with this. It did have an interesting concept. I thought that it would have good world development and I would be able to read about an interesting dystopian society. However, Rose didn’t do much world building and she hardly describes how the world ended up the way it did or much about the world at all.

Sage is also much too perfect. He and Kallista pretty much fall in love right away which is pretty irritating. Love at first sight isn’t real if you ask me. This book also seems like it wasn’t edited very well. It seems like the author just winged things as she went along and she didn’t edit it so it seemed more natural.

I didn’t see the ending twist coming, but I also didn’t like it and thought it was unrealistic.

The book also had pretty much no plot. Kallista pretty much just ran around and flirted with Sage.

Overall I give this book two out of five.
